Cucumber (Southekai) Guli Appa (Appam/Paddu)

Appam is a very tasty food of South India which is known by many names like Appa/ Paddu/ Kuzhi paniyaram/ Guntha Ponganalu. They can be made sweet and spicy version. I must say this is the best healthy snack to attract kids because of its cute small shape.



Dosa rice- 3 cups
Beaten Rice – ½ cup
Cucumber – 4-5 cups
Jaggery – (According to our taste bud!)
Green chilly, curry leaves, onion chopped
Ghee, Salt



*Wash and soak the dosa rice, in water for 5-6 hours

* Drain the water completely after soaking.

* Take the half of the portion of the soaked dosa rice, beaten rice, cucumber and jaggery then grind together. Add a little salt. Please don’t add water

* Left half portion grind without adding jaggery for the unsweetened version of appam.

* For unsweetened version, add green chilly, curry leaves and onion to the batter.
